If you're: Curvy

If you've got curves, we say show them off. But when it comes to shorts, you'll want to choose a style that flatters your hourglass shape — and doesn't add more bulk where you don't want it. Choose a mid-rise style that isn't too tight and look for something with pleats and a belted waistband to highlight your best assets. Tuck in a fitted tank in a bold hue, add some pointed toe flats and an envelope clutch for an afternoon date or early evening patio party.

Our pick: Enhance your covet-worthy curves with a pair of casual yet chic Marc by Marc Jacobs pleated shorts (saksfifithavenue.com, $186).

If you're: Petite

Finding jean shorts can be a frustrating feat for those of us who are petite. A style that works great on someone taller just ends up looking silly on someone with shorter legs. Find a fashion balance by looking for a pair of denim shorts with a higher rise (aim for 9"). This will help create a more proportioned look. Add a loose-fitting scoop neck tee and a pair of wedge espadrille sandals to complete the look.

Our pick: Add the illusion of extra height with the help of these Topshop vintage high-waisted shorts (topshop.com, $56).

If you have: Long legs

If you were blessed with long legs, you can get away with shorts that have a longer inseam. Opting for longer walking-style shorts will accentuate your get-noticed gams. Pair your longer jean shorts with platform sandals in a neutral hue and a fitted tee in a polka dot or floral pattern.

Our pick: Show off your long legs in a pair of J Brand cuffed stretch denim shorts (nordstrom.com, $198).

If you're: Boy-shaped

No curves? No problem. You can still find a pair of denim shorts this summer that will flatter and enhance your natural shape. Look for a softer material with a looser look like summer-ready chambray. If you can find a pair with flap pockets in the back, even better — that will help give the illusion of curves.

Our pick: Loose yet elegant chambray shorts perfect for any summer occasion (us.monsoon.co.uk, $50).
